The weekly devotions on this page are written by our staff, volunteers and those involved in intercessory prayer ministry. We are grateful for their contribution and heart after God.
A new devotion will be posted every Monday.
For years I have been a student of God’s Word and have gained so much strength from it. I have known and memorized Ephesians 1:3 which says that we are blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 1:3-6 — “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: 4) According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: 5) Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, 6) To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

In Proverbs 4:23 — “Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.” (NCV) “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” (KJV)
In the Greek, the word heart refers to your intellect and will. What that means to me is that it is very important to control what you put and retain in your mind. Does the Scripture not tell us to put on the mind of Christ? We need to think the way that Jesus thinks, to think about the things Jesus thought about and to be sensitive to the Holy Spirit. In John 5:19, it says, “But Jesus said, I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing alone. The Son does only what He sees the Father doing, because the Son does whatever the Father does.” Continue reading
Recently my husband and I have been reading out of the book of Ephesians during our devotions in the morning. I felt impressed to jot down some of the thoughts that have come to me during this time. Walking in unity is so important in our Christian walk and in our relationship with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
In Ephesians 4, Verses 1 – 3 we are encouraged to walk worthy of the calling with which we have been called with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love. If we do this, we are endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. I don’t know about you, but this has not always been easy for me. Continue reading
Song of Solomon 5:12 His eyes as doves By streams of waters, Washing in milk, Sitting in fullness. – Young’s Literal Translation
This verse speaks to me of the importance of gaining God’s perspective, seeing with His eyes and looking at everything in life from the Lord’s point of view. The Lord says His eyes are doves, which speaks of His heart of gentleness and compassion for us. He wants to teach us how to look through His eyes. He loves correcting the vision of His people, removing the distortion and replacing it with the crystal clear vision of truth. Continue reading
Several weeks ago the Lord spoke to our intercessory group and said “Make Room.”
So what did that mean?
The Lord went on to explain that He desired to do a deeper work in our lives. God wants us to expand our thinking, open our hearts and allow Him to heal old wounds. He wants to impart more insight, wisdom, revelation and discernment to His people for these end times. This means making room in our daily life for more time with the Lord and the study of His Word.
